Amazingly realistic portraits (and other art happenings worth your time)

Visiting Artist Talk: Cynthia Daignault

Where it’s at: Regis Center for Art, 418 21st Ave. S, Minneapolis.

What it’s about: Artist, writer, curator, and banjo player Cynthia Daignault stops by Regis for a talk about her process as a creator and thinker. Dividing her time between Baltimore and New York City, Daignault paints with a realism that’s based in concept. She often takes dramatic risks with her work, like burning it or traveling across the United States to capture as many views of the country as she can.

Why you should go: In the post-internet age, painting sometimes can seem like an archaic form. Not so with Daignault, who re-invents it for the 21st century by challenging, reshaping, and trying out new approaches. Find out what she has to say about the art world today at this talk.

When: 7 to 8:30 p.m. Thursday.
